Domitian, ancient imitation
Domitian. 81-96 A.D. AR Denarius. Unofficial Mint. (3.19g, 19.9m, 6h). Obv: IMP . . . DOMIT AVG GERM PM TR P IIII, laureate head right. Rev: TR P? . . . CENS PPP, Minerva standing right on capital of rostral column, with spear and shield; to right owl. (M2). Ex Warren Esty.

An ancient imitation, made of good silver, but at an illegal mint. The portrait and inept rendering of one of Domitianís common Minerva reverses immediately gives this example away.
